Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Magnesia Carbon Bricks. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on magnesia carbon bricks from China for the period Sept. 1, 2012, through Aug. 31, 2013, the International Trade Administration has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 236 percent for the China-wide entity. AD duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 14.

The ITA has also rescinded this review with respect to Fedmet Resources Corporation, which has reported that it is a U.S. importer and not a Chinese producer. As a result, Fedmet’s entries of subject merchandise will be subject to the appropriate exporter’s cash deposit requirements and assessment rates.

Narrow Woven Ribbons. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge from Taiwan for the period Sept. 1, 2013, through Aug. 31, 2014, with respect to seven companies. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on entries of subject merchandise from these companies at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

PET Film. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet and strip from the United Arab Emirates for the period Nov. 1, 2012, through Oct. 31, 2013, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 11.49 percent for producer or exporter JBF RAK LLC. AD duties based on this rate will be assessed on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 14.
